Clos Roquète is a white Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine produced by Frédéric & Daniel Brunier of Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe with a fascinating history to tell…
Châteauneuf-du-Pape (CNdP) is a highly-esteemed commune located in the Southern Rhône of France. It gets its name, “new castle of the Pope,” because the Pope spent his summers there in the 14th Century when the papacy was relocated to nearby Avignon.
This wine is made from 35% Clairette, 35% Roussanne, and 30% Grenache Blanc (all local, white varieties), each adding a unique aromatic and structural dimension. It was aged 11 months in oak prior to release, lending richness and texture.
Despite its rich, creaminess, it also has aromatic lift with notes of lemon peel, ripe cantaloupe, white peach, apricot, next to notes of white blossom, vanilla, honey, fennel, and petrichor (a fancy word for the smell of warm, wet pavement like after a summer rain).
We’re excited to pair this with a lemon, garlic, and herb roasted shrimp over spiralized zucchini noodles.
Cheers to beautiful wines that tell stories and share histories! — 2 months ago
An endless amount of superlatives that could go with this wine.
Frederic Savart L’Accomplie Premier Cru Extra Brut was such a special bottle. I failed to get a photo last night, but thankfully I had one at home that I could grab a pic. L’Accomplie is a Pinot Noir dominant blend rounded out with Chardonnay. Simply a ridiculous amount of deliciousness in the glass. Final thought on this one, just say yes to pairing this with beef short ribs.
